    WAR chip is a simple chip replacement so no wiring needed you just need to run a larger MAF. They provide base maps but you'll need to get it mapped properly. You can use a Porsche or V8 MAF they should be ok.

    Dont forget to brace the manifold/turbo.

    If you're looking for a cheaper engine management check out the WAR chip from Miller.
    I was looking at running without a headlight (well just the glass so it looks to be there) until I figured out another way to mount my air filter, I can't fit a scremer pipe due to the turbo having a v band down pipe mount, can I? But before I got this turbo I was thinking maybe it would come out the o/s wing or bonnet etc, but I am going to have to squeeze my down pipe somewhere as this will be exiting normally, I may have to reshape something to get it through
    I will look into that chip mate cheers for that bit of info

    Hello!

    1st. Someone told you right, you will have to put some other engine menagement system such is VEMS (i've put VEMS for 2012 season, till now i had Megasquirt wich didn't work good).
    2nd. That exhaust manifold that you bought on ebay is totally crap, I've had it on my drift car and it just don't work good, when it heat-up it will crack etc.
    3rd. As i can see you have RHD model and maby you will have problem with putting some other exhaust manifold because steering rack will make problems..
    4th. Had gasket I have is 2,5mm, original is 1,7mm. You have to lover compression with changing pistons. Standards are ok for etc 400-450hp I drive 4th year on standard pistons and all internals, only other head gasket and from this year i've put ARP head studs
    5th. 0,6-0,8bar is too low, go at least for 1bar
